Not broken, it is new and it was working fine one minute and the next it sprayed a small amount of paint even when the trigger was off. Maybe dirt in there? Make needle not seat perfectly. It was after an extended use and lots of dried paint all over it. ?? I just am hoping to find out if there is an easy explanation.

Your needle is not springing back, check out the little plastic piece near the trigger.

strain your paint sometimes I double strain it.
packing nut to tight and or needs a drop of oil (lubrication) for needle to slide back and forth.
beside what you already know and what has been said.

Clean it thoroughly, check the packing nut tightness, and good luck.
